A look at 50 years of the iconic magazine features interviews with and footage of journalists, photographers and performers who have graced its pages since it was launched by publisher Jann Wenner in 1967. In 2 parts.
Ginger Baker looks back on his musical career with Cream and Blind Faith; his introduction to Fela Kuti; his self-destructive patterns and losses of fortune; and his current life inside a fortified South African compound.
Some of this documentary was good; the Blind Faith, Cream, and the Derek and the Dominos areas were quite good.
However, Can someone please tell me how George Harrison was his only 'best' musician friend during the late '60's and early '70's?
It is a glaring omission that Pete Townshend was not interviewed, or even shown in this film.Eric's comeback occurred at the Rainbow Concert, in January of 1973, after two years of inactivity, and was organized by, yes, you guessed it, Pete Townshend.
Oh, and also, Pete was with Eric the first time that he saw Jimi Hendrix perform on stage.
It's completely ridiculous that the producers of this film left Pete out of it, especially since he's alive, and could have easily have been interviewed.
